I am in reflective mode today and I have been thinking about my work and I realised that I need to improve my skills as a manager and my administration skills when it come to paperwork, filing and responding to emails etc.
I am doing two roles at work and time is not my best friend (no excuse I know!) so basically, how do I ensure that my staff respect me as a manager and not to take for granted or knowing that I am 'too' soft. Granted that sometime I want my staff to feel that they can approach me whenever they want and I am approachable but at times it does give them an impression that I am easy to control or will let them any time.
Secondly, my paperwork is a mess and I am trying to set up a 'system; but it does not work for me and I am struggling to keep on top of it.
I am feeling a bit low as I am not sure how to deal with it. I have a mentoring session booked on Tuesday so hopefully I will be able to address some of the issue.
So if you have any advice, information or website, books etc that may help me. Please do let me know!
